Ep.104 of the Edges & Sledges Cricket Podcast: India’s all time greatest test and ODI XIs

Been a while since our last post – since then India have been thrashed in New Zealand, India women have lost the final of the T20 World Cup in Australia and of course Edges & Sledges has cracked its century.

In a parallel universe, today would have been the start of IPL 2020 and our IPL listener campaign. But given there is no live cricket in the time of the Coronavirus, here are the XIs picked by Ashwin, DJ and Varun on Episode 104 of the Edges & Sledges Cricket Podcast (released 29 March) for Team India’s all time greatest test XI and ODI XI.

Let us know what you guys think of our picks by writing in on Twitter. Try to not be too harsh – it’s just some fun and inevitably some obvious GOAT would have been omitted!

India's greatest test XI


Also, very happy to say that we have two episodes releasing this week – the GOAT India XIs on Monday 29 March and then we go through India’s journey to World Cup glory in 2011 on Thursday with a very special guest.

Stay tuned and follow the Edges & Sledges Cricket Podcast – there may be no live cricket but the show goes on!

Ep.96 India crush New Zealand 5-0 in T20I series

Ashwin is joined by Varun and DJ this week to discuss India’s 5-0 T20I destruction of New Zealand.

They discuss the back-to-back superovers in the third and fourth T20I, Rohit’s superlative hitting, KL Rahul’s new and improved short sleeves, Sanju Samson’s wasted opportunities and mixed messages to Rishabh Pant. Manish Pandey continues to impress them with crucial knocks in the middle order and they also discuss whether Shivam Dube has made the most of his extended run in the side.

The podcast really heats up as the Shardul Thakur situation is analysed at length and there is some debate on whether he deserves a spot in the side. They also discuss whether India’s bowling has become better at defending totals and look ahead to which players they think will make it into India’s WT20 squad for the tournament in Australia later this year.

Ep. 95 Bonus episode: Craig Mc Millan on Spin, Sledging and Superovers

In this mid-week bonus episode, we get the golden chance to interview Craig Mc Millan, ex New Zealand Cricket, batting coach and now commentator.

We speak to “Macca” and deep-dive the incredible third NZ v Ind T20 just concluded on Wednesday, particularly Shami’s last over, the big hitting innings from Kane Williamson as well as Rohit Sharma’s sixes.

We also speak about his love affair with India and playing spin, being sledged by Australians, playing in New Zealand’s first ever T20 and playing in 3 World Cups and the 2007 T20 World Cup.

We also ask him what it was like to be in the dressing room as batting coach during CWC19 final, how the Kiwis plotted to defeat India in their CWC semi-final and which teams he thinks are favourites to win the WT20.

Podcast available on IVM and all major platforms. You can find links to the Apple Podcasts, Google, Spotify, Castbox, YouTube etc here.
